Not even a hint of a whisper of a spoiler please - we're going with UK time, so Sunday night.

Christmas is feeling like a minor interruption on the road to the season finale. I want it over with so we're closer to seeing just how sensible Carrie was when she went alone down a sarin-loaded train tunnel, and the total number of injuries Quinn can sustain in a single season. I predict he'll leave hospital and there will be some freak injury involving currywurst.

My Christmas present will be Homeland final episode on the 25th. But I'll keep Quinn about it till Sunday.

So glad for this thread. I was looking in threads I'm on and got a whiff of a spoiler. Only a whiff though so didn't look too much.

Hassled Wed 23-Dec-15 20:37:54

My present will be to get the family happily playing that Homeland board game I bought about 100 years ago. DS3 will not strop off in a fury, DS1 will not be unbearably smug because he's winning (he always wins a board game), I won't be too thick to understand the rules and all will be well. That's the plan, anyway.

I think we'll be left with a cliffhanger regarding Quinn's ultimate survival...

Namechanger2015 Wed 23-Dec-15 20:51:04

I'm confused as to what we are watching next. My brain hasn't yet accepted the end of this series of Homeland being nearly upon us.

Is it Deutschland 83 the week after?
Or someone said Bridges? What's that?

Evening all.

Hassled Wed 23-Dec-15 21:08:27

SpottedZebra said on the last thread Deutschland 83 starts 3/1/16, so that's the following Sunday - excellent. Don't know anything about Bridges either.

RudeElf Wed 23-Dec-15 21:17:03

But I'll keep Quinn about it till Sunday.

grin

Thanks for new thread hassled i had given up on the other one as it so long it takes a million years to load on my phone, also i detected a slight spoiler? So have left that one be.

I'm really putting my every last hope into the season finally for a brodie appearance some sort of redeeming mindblowing event. With no wigs or cigarette signals

Hello! I am also finding Christmas to be a minor distraction whilst we wait for Sunday despite the irritatingly spoilery comments-- from Cote---- on the last thread.-- Deutschland 83 sounds promising!

oneowlgirl Wed 23-Dec-15 21:25:49

Is Deutschland 83 in English? Rough idea of the plot?

GypsyFl0ss Wed 23-Dec-15 21:47:14

I'm here.

Hassled Wed 23-Dec-15 21:47:47

From what I've gleaned from Wiki, Cold War Stasi stuff and yes, in German so we'll need to pay attention to the subtitles and/or learn German. Fiderer will be OK.

Cocolepew Wed 23-Dec-15 21:51:52

I'm in

GypsyFl0ss Wed 23-Dec-15 21:52:02

Oh arse that means I'll actually have to watch the screen rather than listen, half watch and mostly MN.

GypsyFl0ss Wed 23-Dec-15 21:53:31

That looks like a Saul kinda hat.

Pigeonpost Wed 23-Dec-15 21:59:11

Subtitles?! Bollocks. I normally sew or MN whilst watching tv and even the subtitled bits in Homeland were too much for my v rusty A-level German...

oneowlgirl Wed 23-Dec-15 21:59:33

I'll give that a miss then as too lazy for subtitles grin

Fiderer Wed 23-Dec-15 21:59:41

Thanks Hassled Signing in to the MN Station.

Not sure I'm up for Deutschland 83. No idea what it's about, we don't even have German TV any more as the satellite dish got knocked out by snow & the children hadn't watched it in years so I never bothered getting it repaired.

On Sunday I'll be in the UK and stuffing my face with sausage rolls & mince pies. Best SaulSnacks ever.

Welcome home Fiderer - enjoy the food!

Fiderer Wed 23-Dec-15 22:06:44

Thanks owl I don't fly till Saturday but I am going to eat my body weight in the bacon my mum orders from a farm. Also sausages, my children always ask why when we live in sausage land, so to speak, the ones we eat in England are so much better.

Howaboutthisone Wed 23-Dec-15 22:55:33

Checking in!
Mmm sausages and bacon- great snacks!

Ledkr Wed 23-Dec-15 23:01:34

I will save myself enough xmas leftovers for a light buffet on the 3rd.
